A mother of six children is fighting for her life after suffering serious injuries in a car accident in New York City. The 32-year-old victim was in the back of a Honda Accord driven by a Lyft driver crossing the intersection of Dekalb Avenue and Bedford Avenue with the light in their favor, when a reckless driver speeding down Dekalb Avenue in a Dodge Charger ran the red light and the back of the Lyft car.
The impact of the crash was so severe that the victim was ejected from the Honda which spun around, crashed into another parked car and jumped the curb to finally stop right in the front entrance of a deli. The victim was rushed to the hospital with life threatening injuries. The Lyft driver and the Charger driver both suffered minor injuries.
The police identified the Dodge driver as 22-year-old Ryan Ortiz from Middletown, NY. His car was souped-up with vanity plates “SCR3AM” and a wrap-around design from the horror film Scream. Videos on social media from a few hours before the accident, which occurred a little bit after midnight, show the car performing “donuts” in the Kings Plaza Shopping Center parking lot.
